    Warschau (Tag 1)

    July 14 in Poland ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Am Morgen wachte ich mit über 30 Stichen auf. Ob ich die alle von der Wanderung hatte oder ob nachts in meinem Zimmer irgendwas auf der Suche nach Nahrung umherflog/-lief werde ich wohl niemals erfahren. In der Pension gab es ein leckeres und umfangreiches Frühstück.
    Nach dem Frühstück packte ich meine Sachen und suchte den Busbahnhof auf. Mein eigentlicher Plan war von Krynica Morska mit dem Bus nach Malbork zu fahren und von dort mit dem Zug nach Warschau. Als ich am Busbahnhof eintraf stand dort jedoch ein Bus, der direkt nach Warschau fahren sollte. Den Bus nahm ich dann auch spontan, denn zu diesem Zeitpunkt wusste ich nicht, dass der Bus 7 Stunden brauchte...
    In Warschau hatte ich das "Oki Doki Old Town Hostel" gebucht. Das Hostel ist wirklich klasse, top modern, sauber und gemütlich. Am frühen Abend holten mich Andrzej (Barbaras Bruder), Lidia und Kamin am Hostel ab, um mir die Stadt zu zeigen. Unser erster "Stop" war die Universität. Hier gab es einige Aussichtspunkte, von denen man Teile der Stadt von oben sehen konnte. Anschließend zeigten sie mir den "Ujazdów", eine riesige Parkanlage mit Schlössern, Seen und einem Amphitheater.
    Von dort aus fuhren wir weiter bis zur St.-Alexander-Kirche, um dann durch die bekannte "Nowy Swait" in die Altstadt zu laufen. Dort setzten wir uns in ein schönes Restaurant, direkt auf dem "Marktplatz" und bestellten polnische Pierogi. Es war ein richtig schöner Abend und ich hatte Glück, dass die drei mir so viel zeigen konnten :-).

    Warschau

    September 27 in Poland ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Heute sind wir in Polens 3,5 Millionen Einwohner großen Hauptstadt angekommen. Eine Mischung aus Neu und Alt.
    Zum Glück wurde die Altstadt nach der Zerstörung im 2. Weltkrieg wieder aufgebaut 🏙️

    Warschau Altstadt

    August 5 in Poland ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Nach einem längeren Schlaf, ging es in Richtung Frühstück. Das Lokal war ein Volltreffer!
    Ich hab Eggs Benedict geordert, was tatsächlich bis nachmittags vorgehalten hat.

    Nach dem ausgiebigen Frühstück ging es in die Altstadt. Im Gegensatz zum Stadtkern, ist die Altstadt richtig schön und tatsächlich altertümlich.

    Gegen Mittag gab es tradionell polnische Küche: Pirogis.

    Last day in Warsaw

    May 23, 2017 in Poland ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Well I decided to stay another day because I didn't see everything and because it's just so gorgeous. I went to the train station and got a 1st class ticket for tomorrow that was cheaper than buying a regular ticket for today. I went to the Dali-Warhol art exhibit, which was a little disappointing because it was only one floor ($17.50). I've been to better exhibits for less. I walked back to the hostel to rest and then went off an hour later to the Warsaw uprising museum. It was so hot and quite a ways away. I went to the former Jewish ghetto section where more than 300,000 Jews were executed. I finally reached the uprising museum and it was closed. Back to the hostel I went. Bought some items for tomorrow's roadtrip and in the evening participated in the "learn polish" program at the hostel. That was fun! (16km today)Read more

    Varsovie

    July 21 in Poland ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    Nous étions déjà venus à Varsovie il y a 23 ans....
    À part le palais des sciences et de la culture, nous n'en avions que peu de souvenir.
    Comment avons nous pu oublier ?
    La vieille ville est magnifique, le rynec est le plus beau que nous ayons vu en Pologne, de plus le beau temps est au rendez-vous; bref, étions-nous vraiment déjà venus ici?
    La journée se termine dans les quartiers à la gloire (de l'époque) du communisme et en particulier dans le musée Csar PRL qui illustre la vie sous ce régime. Une image d'Épinal.

    Day 9 Warsaw

    August 11, 2018 in Poland ⋅ 🌧 17 °C

    Our plan for this day was to do a free walking tour in old town to get to know it a little bit better, but as we woke up it was raining cats and dogs! After all this time with perfect sunny weather we haven't been prepared at all. We decided to sleep late and relax until the weather got better. In the afternoon the rain ended and we were able to go into the old town. We catched a free walking tour. It led through the old town and was quite interesting. Afterwards we ate polish dinner again and returned to the apartment. Finally we went out to explore the nightlife of Warsaw. We found a club which was partly outside and it seemed to be quite local. After some hours we returned to the flat.Read more

    First day of sightseeing

    May 31 in Poland ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    After a good night's sleep and leisurely breakfast, we wandered round the old town and out of the gate into the new town which despite its name dates from the 15C. It too has been reconstructed in parts but one building is the home of Marie Curie who then went by her Polish name of Maria Sklodowska. It is now a museum to her and is a fascinating place containing some of the lab equipment and lots of photos and possessions. They were a remarkable family of teachers, doctors, physicists, chemists, bioengineers with several Nobel prizes between them. Some lovely photos of Marie attending science symposiums with a roll call of the greats of science in the early 20C.
    Then on to another museum - a new one celebrating the contribution of Jews to Poland from the 13C onwards to their extermination. The section on the Warsaw ghetto was particularly sobering, it's incredible that one section of humankind can do that to another section, but of course things continue to the present day. A very impressive museum which makes us realise how little we know about eastern Europe.
    It's been another beautiful warm and sunny day much better weather than we expected.

    Saturday - cathedral and museum

    June 1 in Poland ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Warsaw was where Chopin was born and brought up so the city has Chopin stuff everywhere (even the airport is called Warsaw Chopin) so last night we went to a small Chopin concert just round the corner from the apartment. Today was cloudy and overcast at first then very humid and at 24 degrees very hot and then sunny so a cool visit to the cathedral, which is pleasantly light and airy, was very welcome. It was destroyed of course and rebuilt. It is full of wonderful stained glass windows - nearly full height, roof to floor, - and really well done. Next door is the Jesuit church - also very plain and tasteful. Then on to the national museum - a 20 minute walk in the sun before we found that the antiques section - Egyptian, Roman etc - was closed for renovation. However they have a very fine section from an excavation in Nubia of a cathedral stuffed full of frescos dating to the 8th to 12th centuries, and that was wonderful, and lots of Coptic and meroitic material.

    Saturday seems to be family fun day in Warsaw and all the squares and streets are packed with people. The square outside the apartment has buskers and jugglers and balloon sellers and dancing groups ..... Now .. Where can we find somewhere quiet to eat??

    Warsaw - Monday

    August 29, 2016 in Poland ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    We started the day by catching a train to Warsaw, which was efficient as the European trains normally are however I was disappointed that they got my order for breakfast wrong and I ended up with scrambled eggs instead of some hot croissants with jam that I was looking forward to eating.

    We initially got a little lost trying to find our way to our apartment from the train station and frustrated with the stupid cobblestones that make wheeling bags around very annoying.

    We settled in for some recovery time and then headed into the nearby shopping centre for some everyday shopping time. We enjoyed some classy food court food for dinner (Zinger burgers are pretty much the same all over the world). There was a Magnum ice cream stand there where they would let you pick your toppings and dip the ice cream bars in dark/white/milk chocolate.
